A Closer Look at the 2011 Bears Schedule


aaaaaaaaa.jpg

To look at the previous post, listing the schedule, click here.

Analyzing potential draft picks is the element of NFL writing I find most boring.  Coming in a close second is analyzing the schedule on the day of its release.  No one knows in April how good the Broncos or Chiefs will be in November.  No one knows if the Vikings will solve their quarterback issues or if the Green Bay Packers will stay healthy.  Three words pretty much sum up the coming season, when the discussion is happening in April: no one knows.

Here's what we do know:
  • The Bears and Packers on Christmas night will be one of the most heavily watched football games of the year.  When Christmas falls on Sunday, the NFL flips its entire schedule to Saturday and gives two teams the national spotlight.  Bears/Pack are it.
  • I like to look at the schedule and target trouble areas.  The trouble three-game stretch for the Bears is the first three games of their season: home Falcons, at Saints, home Packers.  That is the only stretch that seems scary at this point.
  • So much for the Chicago weather having an impact.  The Bears have only one home game in December - against the Seattle Seahawks.
  • I don't ever remember the NFL stacking all four Bears AFC opponents in consecutive weeks.  Since these games have no tiebreaker impact, I'd prefer they be earlier in the year as opposed to November-December.
  • Didn't the NFL get the Bears memo stating we will only play the Saints in cold weather?
  • I was happy to see the Lions with a Monday night game.
  • I'm thrilled the Bears avoided the opening night contest with the Packers.  Home teams never lose that game.  That being said, go Saints!
  • Bears at Broncos.  December 11th.  Toughness Bowl.

  • First (again) to say that rodgers is one goofy motherfucker

  • Secondly, the schedule doesn't look so bad right now. A new year is a new year, but this is an easier schedule than last year's.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Fuck the easy route. I want to beat all the "good teams" in route to our superbowl win! Seeing the schedule has me all wet like a highschool chik. ( Trac just saying so don't get all pissy)

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I have to agree with Jeff. The first three games, as of now, look like the toughest part of the schedule.
    On a side note, five inches of snow on the ground is not cool. The birds, who are usually very loud right now, are hunkering down.

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    At first glance, I'm liking this schedule. Weeks 4-7 and 12-15 look particularly nice. Of course, this schedule will look completely different by week 4, but it's April so let's just enjoy what we've got. I'm still not sure what to think of Detroit, once a guaranteed two wins for our Bears, now a split isn't out of the question...and seeing the Pack get killed on Christmas night would be a delight.

  • In reply to whatwouldditkado:

    wwdd - no split with Detroit. The first game last year was a fluke. We absolutely fucking killed them in all aspects of the game and turned it over 3 times in the red zone on fumbles by Forte and Olsen.

    They are simply dead. Stafford is going to be retired for the season yet again.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Stafford.......?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    DEAD

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    thank you sir.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    ... retired In the same season too. They're cursed, all the stars are aligning for Detroit. The wheels have to fall off the wagon somehow.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    you've bought into the propaganda Irish. They were supposed to be everyone's star last year and... meeeeehhhhhhh.

    Just like Buffalo... MAN, they play everyone SOOOOO tough!!! Yeah, but they still fucking lose every damn game. Last I checked, you don't get any points for trying really, really, really hard... unless the competition committee changed that already this offseason.

    My predication... detroit: 5 or 6 - something.

    Oh, speaking of listening to moron analysts, I caught Chucky's interview of Nick Fairley last night... man that kid is about as bright as a bag of fucking claw hammers. Jesus, I could barly understand him when he grunted one or two word answers. Just brutal. And we're all shocked that these kids have no clue how to manage millions of dollars? If this kid wasn

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Yeah kind of makes you wonder why they bother with the rules of college players getting some kind of compensation. lets face it the University compensates them by obviously doctoring grades and giving degrees to young men that are barley literate. Ill bet more than half of the guys drafted can't balance their check book. It's all so hypocritical.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Five fucking pre-season games, are you kidding me ?

    We need to draft about four quarterbacks. Cutler plays fourth quarters only. If he throws a TD, he sits.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    I say we get Scrappy Sheed to play QB, or pull Juice Williams back just for the pre-season.

    Did Dan LaFavor end up anywhere? If not, give the man a call, he gets to play some more...

  • In reply to gpldan:

    LaFevour is on the Bengals roster. They cut J.T. O'Sullivan to sign DL

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    Aren't there any other Palmer siblings they can sign?

    It does solve the mystery - CP wants to retire because he's feeling the heat of LeFevour.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Heat. LeFever. Nicely played.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    (takes a bow)

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I'd love us to get Rosenfels. We'll definitely need a backup to Hanie, we got really lucky Cutler only missed one game this year.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    +1 on both.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Sure, just give Trent PenisHead Dilfer and the four lettered network ammo to lower our power rankings. Last year it was "Oh, every team we play has a back up qb" (Last time I checked, the Pack almost beat the Pats with a back-up) or "They wern't injured" (As if that's somehow the Bears fault).

    Hey, experts, how'd that work out? We lost (barely) to the SuperBowl Champs with a third string QB.

    I got your ranking right here.

    +1

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I can't sleep, because I keep thinking about some stuff I heard tonight, so I'll vent on DBB. Here's a microcosm of what's wrong with this country today, and I'll use my extended family as an example.
    I have one uncle who is a far right-wing nut who is very angry with life because his kids hate him (think 12 angry men). He thinks every drug user should be in prison. The only thing that makes him happy is when we bomb another country. If he had his way, we would nuke about half the world population. He's a fucking coward. Now this asshole gets $400 a month disability from the military, because he kept petitioning that he had hearing loss from being a fucking secretary for 18 months in Germany during the Vietnam War. Now his fat, lazy ass is fighting the VA because they give him generic drugs and not the name brands.
    My aunt on the other side of the family married a loser about 10 years ago. He's one of those assholes at a bonfire party who walks around and steals beers out of everyone's coolers. He spent the Vietnam War stateside, but claims he was there. He's a total bullshitter. He claims his heart bypass surgery at the age of 35 was due to the stress of being in the military. He's been drawing SS and disability pay ever since. He recently sued the military, and got a big settlement, so my aunt can now retire and they can live in white trash heaven.
    On the other end of the spectrum, you got hard working, bad ass people like my Dad and another Uncle who really made sacrifices and taught good values and morals. My Dad spent two years in Vietnam in some of the worst situations of the war. He was caught up in the shit storm in Khe Sanh, Dong Ha,Hue, and parts of Laos during the Tet offensive. Even though he hated being drafted, he refuses to take the money the military offers him today because of all his exposure to Agent Orange. Instead, he pays shit loads of taxes (8G) while retired because he busted his ass his whole life as a truck driver. I have another uncle who had over 80% of his face burned in Vietnam and has lost use of one eye since, plus other complications from his burns. He was also drafted, hated it, but refuses to take any military disability pay. He also busted his ass his whole life, and pays tons of taxes.
    The first two uncles I mentioned have 5 out of 6 kids living off the government tit. My Dad and other uncle have 6 kids, including myself, who are all productive members of society. I'm really proud of my sister, who has several medical degrees and teaches at a Medical college, but spends most of her time working at a VA hospital helping patients with mental trauma. It took my Grandpa almost 60 years before he would talk about fighting on D-Day and beyond. He was helping to defend St. Marie Igleis on D-Day. I had to throw that in because he's always been my hero, even though he was a simple lumberjack, farmer, and miner his whole life. He also won two Silver Stars, which were found just before he died. When we asked him about it, he just said "I don't know, they gave me some God damned medals for something". He was not proud of what he did, like most guys he fought with.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    I could tell you heartbreaking war stories from family members for hours Irish, and the storyteller never had anything but pain showing through on their face. I don't ever remember a story that included the word "glory". Here's a good recent song from Wanee festival, if you like blues/soul music.

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    The only one I really know is a good one. No glory, just a nice happenstance. One of my mother's cousins was driving an ambulance in France during the closing volleys of WW2. He had a brother posted somewhere in Europe but he didn't know where. Turned out he picked up his brother on the ambulance after he'd suffered some injuries in an exchange, dumb luck.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I have a confession... I love those two. Fucken a man, talk about winners.

    As you all know, I wanted Jimmy to come to us if we had (and we should have - "My oly job is to beat green bay... yeah, how'd that work out for us last year dipshit) canned lovie. He might have a first year or two of rebuilding, but the guy is a fucking ass-kicker without a doubt.

    the 49ers have some seriously good talent on both sides of the ball, they just need to find an elite QB to pull it together, and I think Jimmy will be excellent at finding/making that QB.

    As for the ravens, they're been bad-ass for many years now. They also have like 6 #1 WRs to our 0.

    Would you guys trade lovie for Jimmy straight up (if we could take the whole new coach vs. established coach thing off the table)?

    Cor look on the bright side. Your dad was one of the productive members of the family and someone to look up to. That's priceless. If the nut job uncle was your dad, I'm pretty sure you'd be fucked up in some manner. Most families have some relatives they would be just as happy if they never saw them again. Hats off to your grandfather, dad and other uncle. They are people you can always talk about with great pride and they helped form the person you are. The other bozos, not so much.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    I would say, the other bozo's helped form the person he is by knowing the person he didn't want to be. Which can be just as important. For me, fear of failure always drove me more than desire for success.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Well said Doc. I think that's what drives many of us. I grew up in a poor household and I knew I didn't want my kids growing up with nothing and feared them having any childhood that resembled my own. So far that's worked with flying colors. Fear can drive a man to either do great things or terrible things. it's really your choice how you choose to deal with it.

    Seeing as there's a holdup in place, newer squads/coaches are at that disadvantage come game-time. That really doesn't help us except with the Vikings, but's that week six already. A good DT in the draft, shore that line and there isn't anyone on that schedule who's ass we can't kick.

    Except the Patriots.
    If we somehow shore up that line with a good pick somewhere, and an emergence from Asiata/Louis/Edwin Williams

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    i did some rough math and calculations and i have us starting out at 16-0. I don't know if it is scientific or not but is probably as scientific as our Chicago beat reporters predicting our record without even knowing who is on the fucking team or on anyone else's.

    "back of napkin math" at it's best.

    Well done.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    I'm sorry Pat ... I don't know what came over me ... I think it was that third last Kielbasa. Yeah, 16-0. Cutler throws for over a thousand yards in Lambeau, his seventh touchdown pass breaks the sound barrier and several thousand Packer fans have their eardrums perforated. Clay Matthews hair is ejected from the game for pointless hair.

    Almost forgot, and Rodgers.... FUCKING DEAD!

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Asiata/Lous/Edwin Williams all had a chance to win a starting job over Garza, who also happened to be injured, and STILL Garza won. Smith almost criticized them in typical Lovie fashion saying 'they had a chance'. If their ass catches fire this year, I'd be pleasantly surprised.

    As for defensive line, I keep hearing that Marvin Austin, who talent wise is considered top 3 DT (tied with Liuget), may fall to 29 because of character concerns. It will be interesting to see if Austin and Sherrod are available, which one would the Bears draft.

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

We need to get the owners and players attention and we need to to do it fast. I don't want to spend a fucking dime if they keep fucking around and fuck this season up. If we got a couple million people to jump on board we could make some waves. Even if we got a couple thousand it would help. Your thoughts? How would we make the site so some scumbag hacker couldn't get on there and start spamming the fuck out of us. I have inquired with my tech guy and he is working on some solution for me.

    that is absolutely true. It is just frustrating that we the fans really have made the NFL what it is today with our monetary investment. We represent at least half of that 9 billion don't we? we should have some sort of say as to whether we just have or don't have a season. I love this game and it really is a nice diversion to some of the craziness that is life. To take that away because owners didn't realize the league would be this successful for the last 2 years and because the guys repping the players are complete jagoffs is a tough pill to swallow. Imagine sitting across the table from Richardson and from D. Smith. 2 guys you just want to fucking choke out at the mere sight of their pretentious asses. The lack of any sort of control over the situation sucks.

    I don't think that first three weeks of the schedule are that bad. Play two of those games at home and the third one in New Orleans where the Bears have been VERY successful throughout their history.

    Think of it this way, if Chicago wins all three games they'll probably make the playoffs because they'll possess tie-breaking victories over the NFC's best teams.

    If the Bears lose those three games then they're fucked like a $5 hooker on discount night.

    I really wish Chicagonow allowed embed tags, so we could embed the pictures right into the thread.

    They're young and inexperienced. Asiata's only got five years playing football. Have to go with Sherrod.

  • Hey Doc... did you visit the Da Blog home page? They don't have your little links, but now they have "recent posts" which should tell you that you are on an old thread.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Yes but, when I'm on the home page I can tell when there's a new page by looking at the posts. It's when I'm on a thread, refreshing all day, in the comment section that I want the alert. Like I said. Random downgrade. I don't get it.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Soon that will be the least of yor problems my friend. Tee hee.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Damn, that was cold (but so true)

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    You sons a bitches.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    I've got my assessment apt this friday doc... thanks to you, you poor fabulous bastard.

    Snip snip. No way I'm getting that shitbomb again, "Uh, babe... we're having a third"

    And you know what... the promise of extended, multiple sexcapades each week for months till we get pregnant was bullshit BOTH times for me. We basically got pregnant the very first month we started trying. Total bullshit, false advertising even. Then 10-18 months of almost none. I was willing to do that shit for two... not the 'optional' third.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I'm lucky, and I'm not just saying this. My wife almost never turns it down. She's hornier than I.

    For me the good news is, 9 months of sex without the pullout. Hells Yeah!

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    9 months???? what if you stab the baby's head???

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Maybe just the tip, just to see how it feels.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    ha!

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Nice. Good for you doc. I don't even know what that would look like unfortunately (for me).

    And way to look on the brightside my man. That's the espiritu

    Anyone ever see the show Ancient Aliens? I'm guessing you have MB. Crazy shit.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Have you ever watched ancient aliens, on weed?

    Happy 4/20 Doc!

  • In reply to MASOCHR:

    hee hee

  • In reply to MASOCHR:

    If you want to see how deep in the shit the Restrepo guy was before they got killed, here are pictures from his photographer (who was badly injured) earlier in the day before they got hit:

  • In reply to gpldan:

    that is intense. the heart of the conflict photographer can't be measured. let's hope some good comes of this conflict.

  • In reply to MASOCHR:

    Sadly, this is my first dry 420 in about 15 years.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Congrats doc. Trac would be proud.

    Trac, where are you man?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I'm quitting cause I'm broke, not because I should. I could give a shit less what Trac thinks. See? I'm already grumpier and much less pleasant to be around.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    start a side company for tutoring highschool kids over the summer or during the year, write off literally everything that won't get your thrown in the big house with Blade and watch the money pile up mang. It's all about the side business doing what you already do well.
    I'm a male slut on the side...

    Old lady I will bang you for money LLC is my side company.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    damn, I was going to incorporate with that name.

    Oh, well.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Your Theories are intriguing to me. I'd like to subscribe to your newsletter.

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    I was kidding about trac doc.

    Man, you are grumpier. You just need to find something else to replace it... do you like running or riding a bike?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Riding a bike. I just need to get my bike worked on. Needs a new sprocket and some tender loving care. No money to fix it and no time to ride it. What else ya got?

  • In reply to DocNitty34:

    Smoking cheaper weed?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Oh that's it. You and Me. Bike Racks. After School.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    It's a chicken MB, probably a victim of Colonel Sanders.

    I knew there was a reason I never eat at that place Murph

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    McDonalds grinds that bastard up and makes McNuggets. The kids love those in the happy meals! Next time the kid wants those picture the alien.

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    My kids won't eat that shit Murph... well, not on my dime anyway.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    i don't know, that alien looked pretty small. It was kind of jacked though for a tiny alien.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    In space, when you're super-evolved, a larger carapace just means poor inefficiency. Haven't you ever heard the saying, "utilize a smaller than average host body form, but carry an insanely powerful particle beam death ray

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    poor efficiency, of course

    I only imagine how all 7 people left in Detroit will regard Millen's return to Ford Field.

  • Hope that Christmas game is Cutlers redemption game. I pray that he comes out slinging the skin up and down all around goin to town! Putting mad work on the opponents! Go bears!

  • ooohhhh... I want a puma slipper woman for $30! I wonder what she looks like.... and what she does? Is that like a cougar?

  • i hate that we have 4 night games. It sounds like a huge cop out but something goes screwy with Jay at night. He looks like a heroin addict after 7pm...and plays like it to sometimes. Fucking hate night games.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    if we make it through our 7 game preseason unscathed it is going to be a great year. Now i'm starting to get excited.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    I'm with you Waffle. I also like to sober up by Sunday night.

    agreed

  • you are gay

  • Hi Jessica, I would like to learn more about this revolutionary service... do you have a website address, or even better, what is your mobile and/or home phone number and I will give you a call.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Jessica,

    How about you and I share some coffee and shampoo? You may need a diaper afterwards, but I'll make sure to send a greeting card after it's over. Deal?

  • In reply to gpldan:

    GP, you can't forget you may need some medicine to clear up the VD after you're done with her.
